AFROPUNK Brooklyn announced the lineup for its 2023 summer festival, featuring Jazmine Sullivan and Flying Lotus as headliners. The organizers also announced that the weekend event will be held in a new location in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.


The producer says that there are tracks he's yet to hear from the late wordsmith.


All these years, and we’re still curious about Dr. Dre’s now mythical album Detox. According to Flying Lotus, the project is very real and he actually heard it.

If you’re a rap fan, it’s a great chance that today’s task involved discussing, dissecting, or doing a combination of the two to fully grasp Kendrick Lamar’s To Pimp A Butterfly.

Flying Lotus is known for making off-kilter, ethereal productions, so teaming with DOOM only makes sense. Such is the case on “Masquatch.” 

Bone Thugs N Harmony, News, Wired Tracks

As previously reported, the remastered Grand Theft Auto V has officially released. Featuring a reconfigured soundtrack, listeners receive a lot of new music, including a Flying Lotus track called “Medication Meditation,” featuring Krayzie Bone of Bone Thugs-N-Harmony.
